Located on Freshwater Beach, the Freshwater Surf Life Saving Club provides a relaxed and casual atmosphere for your special event. Established in 1908, our rich history is reflected in our Club rooms, which are now available for your wedding, engagement, birthday, Christmas party or other special event.
We recommend a select group of award winning caterers (preferred) and our hire fees reflect a discount if you choose one of these. They offer a wide range of menu options catering to all budgets and can design a menu for your special event. Alternatively you may choose to use your own caterer. You may NOT ‘self-cater’.
At Freshwater Surf Life Saving Club we allow you to purchase your own beverages (a considerable saving can be made by doing this) but, suitably qualified RSA bar staff must serve your beverages.
All proceeds from function room hire go straight back into the club to assist with the on-going purchase of vital life saving equipment as well as training new patrolling lifesavers and keeping our current patrol members up-to-date with the latest lifesaving techniques.
With the combination of the location of Freshwater Surf Life Saving Club and our preferred caterers as event managers, your special event is sure to be memorable.
